Juneau's Christmas boat lighting contest is back for a second year.
The City and Borough of Juneau, Docks and Harbor, the Juneau Yacht Club and the Juneau Radio Center are teaming up to sponsor the 2nd Annual Christmas Boat Lighting Contest.
Prizes will be awarded in both the commercial/government and recreational vessel categories. Judging will be by local business and civic leaders from 5-10 p.m. on Dec. 22 and 23.
Criteria will include creativity, Christmas spirit, luminescence, detail and imagination. There is no need to sign up. The only thing required is that vessel owners add some "Christmas Cheer" for the holidays. All lighted vessels will be judged. If you are not in a city-owned harbor, but would like to participate, please contact Docks and Harbors or the Juneau Chamber to notify the judges.
Cash prizes will be awarded to the top three winners in each category at noon on Dec. 24.
